The Tees Remote ECG Pathway

Dr. M Santhana Krishnan Consultant in Old Age Psychiatry/ Senior Clinical Director, and Lauren Bennett, Innovations Coordinator, along with colleagues from Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust have developed a remote ECG pathway using the KardiaMobile 6L device– the world’s only six-lead CE marked, and FDA cleared personal six-lead ECG.

Initially the team implemented the pathway to support patients and staff during the COVID19 pandemic the benefits and evaluation results from patient’s and staff has been overwhelmingly positive. The Trust has now taken the decision to use these permanently, procuring and distributing over 100 devices across 100 community teams.

 

 

The AHSN NENC is supporting further spread and adoption of this pathway across the region- Cumbria, Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust (CNTW) have procured 40 devices.
